because outdoor adventures are not complete without music, and therefore we see ruggedized Bluetooth speakers popping up in the market. but, can your “ruggedized” Bluetooth speaker really taking the bashing and perhaps, a dunk in the water and survive to sing the song? we can’t say for the rest, but the ECOROX Waterproof Bluetooth Speaker by ECOXGEAR (a Grace Digital brand) is certainly up to the task. not only does its rubberized exterior protects it from drops and daily abuse, it is IPX7 rated for waterproof. note: waterproof not just water resistance. according to the IP file, any device with IPX7 rating is effectively waterproof up to 1m, but the ECOROX doesn’t need to go that far even if it can cos’ it floats. so it will not be lost to the abyss of the lake when it gets knocked overboard.
it uses Bluetooth technology for wireless audio streaming from your smartphone or any Bluetooth-enabled devices, and a rechargeable lithium battery pack keeps it going for up to 10 hours on a single full charge. thanks to its built-in waterproof microphone for its speakerphone functionality, it can even take incoming calls when in wet conditions. it comes with a standard 1/4″ camera screw mount, in case you want it to be on a tripod, if not a removable carabiner is in place for you to clamp it to your backpack, tent, bicycle or wherever you desire, so that you can keep it on the outside and share your tunes while on the move. available in three colorways: red, orange, and black, for $129.99 a pop.
